Let me first introduce myself to you. My name is Nithin Daniel Devadoss and I am a current student of a two year General MBA program at KSBLM which is a part of Karunya University,Coimbatore.
My journey at KSBLM began on July,2012 thats when I started the general MBA program at KSBLM since then everyday has been a day filled with learning.When I first entered Karunya Nagar I was welcomed by the cool breeze and the scenic beauty of the location,the University is located amidst the hills of the Western Ghats, a very calm and tranquil surrounding. I fell in love with the place at first sight.
Before we could start with our regular classes we had an orientation program for a period of 10 days conducted for all the 1st year students.It was a fun filled program which not only helped us to know all the basics needed to excel in the MBA program but also was as an ice breaker and helped us to make new friends.A lot of management games were also conducted Soon the regular classes started and from then on it was assignments,seminars, classes, guest lectures,internals. Though the MBA program is rigorous,learning is made to be fun.
There were lot of events conducted at our B-school and some of the noteworthy events include seminars by very eminent and well experienced people from the industry, "Phronesis" a south India level management fest was a big hit ,the entrepreneurship cell of KSBLM also conducted many events which brought out the hidden entrepreneur in every students.

Twelfth Evangeline Memorial Endowment Lecture
Chief Guest: Eminent professor,Prof.Y.S.Rajan, Padmashree, Honorary Distingushed Professor, ISRO. Topic: Higher Education for a Globalising India - Beyond 2013.


Evangeline Memorial Endowment Lecture is held every year since 2001 by Karunya School of Business Leadership & Management in the memory of late Sister Evangeline Dhinakaran. Prof. Y.S Rajan, Padmashree, Honorary Distinguished Professor, ISRO delivered the lecture at EMEL's 12th edition.
The lecture titled, “Higher Education for A Globalizing India-Beyond 2013” was very insightful and stimulating. Prof. Y. S. Rajan started the lecture by mentioning the history of India and its many interesting facts. He pointed out that though up until the 19th century, India held a dominant position in world trade, its influence has shrunk in the recent past. He said that the ancient education system has decayed and that school education must discover and shape each child to the best of his/her capability and potential since higher education system alone cannot yield very good results.
He brought to light that in calculation of the number of students covered by the universities/colleges in India about 80% of them or more are funded by private sector and about 90% of the taxpayers' money is given to the institutions catering to less than 20% of the students. This stark reality he said is often obfuscated in the public discourse on Higher Education, especially when they talk of the so called “quality” and flog the private sector institutions.
Moreover he emphasized that the Indian children deserve to have an affordable and easy access to an higher education system which will equip them to meet the economic and social challenges posed by rapidly globalizing world. He added that higher education is indispensable and that India has only 10% to 12% eligible persons for higher education.
With the US system of higher education as an example he stated that he believed Indian Education scenario can change for the better, if the system was deregulated and removal of bureaucratic system. In closing he stated that “freedom giving ecosystems” where the Indian higher education system can meet the national societal and economic goals of serving people, creating wealth etc, and also reach global excellence replace the plethora of centralized rules regulations and monopoly inspection systems.
